Lt. Col. Mark Weber exemplifies everything that the United States armed forces stand for. He's an inspiration to his family and his fellow soldiers and a natural leader. Unfortunately, as is often the case with good men, he was taken too soon from this world. After being diagnosed with gastrointestinal cancer, he was saddened to learn that he had just a few months left.
One of his last wishes was to make sure he instilled pride and inspiration into his sons, so when his oldest son was asked to sing "Tell My Father," a Civil War-era song, in front of a crowd, he joined him for a duet that is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. After putting up a brave fight, Lt. Col. Mark Weber passed away about a year after this video was taken. He was 41.
